What is the future for farms and the food grown on them? Construct a display that shows how a rural landscape can change and suggest solutions.
All around the globe, farmland is rapidly being converted to build houses, roads, and other uses. Find out how this loss of land will affect water supplies, the world’s food supply, and other issues. Interview leaders to find out what is happening to agricultural land in your area. Then show what you are learning in a graphic format such as this triarama.
Cut a "today" triarama. To make a display like the one in the picture, cut a recycled file folder into a large square with Crayola® Scissors. Fold the square in half, point to point, both ways. Cut along one of these new folds to the center of the square. Slide one of the sides along the cut under the other piece to stand up your triarama.
Depict a farm. Unfold the triarama. Draw a farm scene with Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils. You might show a bank barn, cozy farmhouse, grazing cows, fruit-laden orchard, or waving fields of grain. Color the scene with Crayola Oil Pastels.
With Crayola Model Magic, create farm animals or other 3-D features. Glue the pieces of the triarama together with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry the glue.
Make a "future" flap! Turn the triarama face down on an open file folder. Trace around the triangle with Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils. Cut out the triangle. On this triangle, draw your vision of what this farmland might look like after it has been "developed." It could be a housing community or a large trucking storage unit. With tape, hinge the flap in place on the triarama.
Speak up! Display your "today" and "future" scene. Speak or write to decision makers in your community about what you have learned. Suggest ways to solve the problem.
